Zip Line World Record Attempt—What Are We Going Up Against?
On June 3rd ACE Adventure Resort is attempting to break the official world record for Most People Down a Zip Wire in 1 Hour! But what exactly do we know about the current record holders? For starters, they come from a company in Germany, so this really is a global competition!
According to the Guinness World Records’ website, CS Naturkonzepte GbR set the record with 122 zips in 1 hour on May 2nd, 2010. Interestingly enough, on Naturkonzepte’s website (you have to scroll down to see it) they state that it took two attempts to break the record. This actually isn’t very surprising—after looking at the requirements for an official record (endless written and visual documentation, letters from witnesses, etc), it’s amazing that so many people pull it off. But if anyone can do it, it’s ACE.
We’re taking the “go big or go home” approach, hoping to shatter the record and hold a place in the giant book for as long as possible! Right now we have more than 180 participants signed up to fly down the 204 feet zip line, whereas they recorded 122 people on a 164 feet zip line. The goal is not really about length, but going above and beyond is the ACE way! While 180 people is an ambitious goal, as long as we beat 122 people and meet all of the guidelines, the record will be ours.
